    Don't go here for a quiet dinner. Go for a casual lunch instead. Pizza is very fresh but watch out for their creations. Mine had no mozzarella so was not what I expected. Tables are too close together and waiters had trouble serving including spilling milk from the next table on me when cleaning it up. They gave us a free dessert. Pudding. I prefer Tiramisu. Limited dessert choices. For the price I expected better foos and service.

    One of the great things about Pizzeria Locale was that they brought out some dough and flour for the kids to play with, each with their own plate. It was awesome for them. Much better than the fake play-dough that some restaurants have for little kids. The kids loved playing with the dough and we loved explaining to them that the dough in their hands became the pizza that they ate. Loved it.

    A very popular spot, Pizzeria Locale is always bustling. Love the food here and the service is friendly and professional. Enjoy sitting at the counter and watching the pizza being made. Often leave with a headache though since the place is so very loud. Covered in hard surfaces, the noise literally bounces all over the small restaurant.

    My first time here and i will definetly be back. My daughter, a student at CU recommended it. Great small starters- the fruiti di mare was excellent- fresh and lightly dressed. the pizzas, margarita, and another with hot chilis marinara and ricotta, were both amazing, the dough was cooked to perfection. Less is more with pizza and this was truly the case. Upon observation, all pizzas looked to die for! The crowd was diverse; families with young chldren, adults after work crowd and students from local college. Our server was outstanding! Will be back again and again when in Boulder!

    I imagine that this is about as delightful a "pizza eating" experience as there can be. The pizza is rich in flavor, and the selections are well thought out. The service is attentive and thorough. I always leave there completely satisfied. If I praise it too much more, I won't be able to get a table, so let's just leave it there.

    I've been to the Boulder Pearl Street location here a couple of times and really like the food, especially the charcuterie. The have a great wine list and a really nice selection of Italian wines by the glass. It's a bit noisy, but not too bad. Our service was good overall, but on our last visit, something was seriously wrong at the bar. Food services was spot on, but we really had to struggle to get our wine. Sometimes our wine orders were simply forgotten and we had to ask repeatedly for our wines. This was early (5:30) and the first time we have experienced problems of any sort here. We will go back.

    I love pizza (an embarrassing amount) and this was quite possibly the best pizza (and crust) I have ever had. I appreciated the authenticness of each pizza they offered. Our server was excellent at recommending both wine and appetizers as well. It is worth the drive to Boulder. I have now been to both the Denver and Boulder locations and Boulder is three times better than the fast food version in Denver.

    The pizza is very Italian--a little soggy (that's a good thing) and moderately cooked, so that some of the cheese still keeps its form. I loved it, but I've always preferred the pizza from Italy over American-style pizza. The lunch special (half a salad a margherita pizza and a soda) is a great deal at $10.

    Love Pizzeria Locale. Every bite of every course is delicious and just what you imagine delicious would taste with your eyes closed. The "altar to prosciutto" begs you to enhance your pizza just a bit more. More tables are needed - many more tables- and a larger outdoor space. I'd eat there every day, if I could. More classic Italian pasticceria would be welcome as they seem to have closed their espresso shop & added a private dining room. Those lovely pillows of pastry did not make it back onto the menu, sadly. Not much more to add to pizza perfection - it's simple, perfectly prepared, high quality ingredients delivered as in Napoli, but this is Boulder! And the wine pairings, olives, oils, meats & cheeses all elevate the experience.

    My partner and I went to Pizzeria Locale for lunch. What an amazing time! We started with some GREAT appetizers.... some salad and the best saffron/mozzarella balls.... the salad was amazing, perfect flavors, perfect amount of dressing. We got one salad and shared it. It was perfectly coded and was the best pizza I have had in a LONG time... probably since we were in Italy! We then had the gelato for dessert and got coffee's to enjoy the end of the meal. It was such delight. Best of all, the service was TREMENDOUS! Our waitress was amazing and the rest of the team there went above and beyond to make sure we were taken care of and felt at home. I truly felt like an honored guest! We will certainly be back!

    I have eaten at Pizzeria Locale many times and it has never disappointed me. This time I brought a friend who had never been before and she was impressed. We went for lunch and I did notice it was not as packed as in the past. I ordered the Mais Mozzarella pizza which has prosciutto, corn and lots of garlic. It is my favorite and it was delicious. My friend had the Salsiccia Pepperoni which has peppers, onions and sausage. The manager (sorry I did not catch his name) was very helpful with the wine choice. I love the fact that the Boulder location is sit down. The Denver location is not form what I have heard.

    I have eaten at Pizzeria Locale several times and generally have been happy with the restaurant and the food. However, on this most recent occasion, they refused to honor my OpenTable reservation. The excuse was they 'suddenly got a lot of reservations'. I'm not sure why this should have been a problem if they were managing their reservations. Service was also very slow. We did not see a waiter for at least 10 minutes after being seated.

    I can honestly say that I've never eaten anything better! This is not a "pizza place" this is a food experience! We shared a pizza and the octopus salad, they were phenomenal! The only reason I gave ambiance a poor rating was that we were sat by the wall where there is construction going on next door.

    We went for happy hour. The happy hour menu is a little sparse for veggetarians, but the food was delicious. The staff was very friendly, knowledgable, and accommodating of my two small children. It was a good deal for happy hour, but I don't think I would go for dinner because the full priced pizzas average around $15 and they are kind of small. We escaped with a bill of $48, including tip, for 3 drinks, 2 pizzas, and an app. Somehow, during non HH times, I would bet my bill would be about $80 - for pizza.

    This is a good, but not great Neapolitan pizza restaurant. Everything tasted great, but the center half of the crust of both pizzas was soggy. Again, the flavors are good and maybe we just caught the kitchen on a bad night. I was surprised given the restaurant's reputation.
